You Loved Me

Vintage Words


I thought that was very witty.

Believing in fairy tales

is like believing that a stitch

in time saves nine. Learning

excellent adages has its uses

when you are bored.


You said you cared about

me exclusively as if I wanted

you exclusively. Fairy tales

are fun and teach what

they teach, but that prince

does not always turn the frog

into a princess. Sometimes it

is the princess doing

the turning.

On own. I wasn't sure if you saw it, since your pm's are disabled.

I Get PMs

Nothing can be done about the notation not showing on my poems or my information page. Admin said he could see it. Other poems have expressed concern but I'm here and I get the messages from the Directory or posted on my poems. I am not computer saavy. I've probably turned it off and can't turn it back on - I did get my ability to change fonts and sizes back "scripting" - go figure. I'd probably have to start a new page, but that's too much work and confusing - I am allets and Lady A and will be until my fingers can not type any longer.

Bad Thread Was My Take


If the one stitch is made of weak thread, nine are not saved, all ten fail and exposure results. I like your take on no time for one as a factor. Bravo! ~allets~

Fairy tales?

A fairy never told me a story!

I feel cheated.

You told Me You loved Me

You told Me You loved Me ,Then like the tooth Fairy and Santa Clause . I found it to be a Lie .

The sad part is part of Me still wants to Believe 

Every story-teller bends the myth to his own purpose. that's why a Hero has a thousand faces

lmo U are mixing up

Tried and True Adages

And Fairy Tales.


allets's picture

Yes, I Mixed 'Em Up Pretty Good

Adages are born of the folk and from repetition become the wisdom of the folk.  Some are often quoted  (or misquoted) from holy text and favorite (popular) literature. Fairy Tale writers took their literary careers in bad gauntlets writing that  *%#(^! (I mean those beautiful stories). Except Aesop - Aesop's Fables rocked! :D
